Kevin & Mike are the co-founders of Instagram. What began with a chance meeting at a cafe turned into a billion dollar business and a partnership that’s lasted a decade. A key to their relationship was understanding each other’s strengths and how those translated into individual roles at a company: CEO and CTO, respectively. But the title that came first and foremost, for both of them, was co-founder. You can find Kevin and Mike on Instagram at @kevin and @mikeyk.
Samin & Wendy are the author and the illustrator of the award-winning cookbook Salt Fat Acid Heat. Their partnership began with an email that Samin sent to Wendy, out of the blue. Six years later, the book was published, and became a #1 New York Times Bestseller, and a hit show on Netflix. The two of them are already working on their next book. But like with any great recipe, their partnership isn’t just about the ingredients; it's about finding the right balance between them.  Learn more about their book at, and follow them on Instagram at @ciaosamin and @wendymac.



Every successful partnership, no matter what kind, is sort of a love story. That’s what this new podcast is about. What did it take for two people to meet, and figure out how to make something together? Each episode is a portrait of two partners and the story they share.
